Day 12 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. – Philippians 2:8

My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the cross, Your cross, was the supreme example of humiliation and submission. You humbled Yourself in allowing the Jewish leaders to accuse You. You humbled Yourself in letting the Government officials to use You and then You humbled Yourself ln letting the Roman Soldiers to abuse You.  You humbled Youself in letting Yourself be mistreated. You humbled Yourself in not retaliating. You did this all in obedience to the Fathers will. When You said “nevertheless not My will but Yours be done” You meant it. You put no limits on Your obedience, even death and then even death on a cross. The worst sort of death imagineable. In Your cross I find the supreme example of a heart of  humility and obedience. Make my heart like Yours, Lord. Please make my heart like Yours.
